Just magnolia monthly challenge

This Friday at Just Magnolia is there special monthly challenge of  "Anything Goes" with the added option of using beads.

This was a commissioned  card i made last week for a friend attending a wedding.

I was asked for a traditional card, Cream & Merlot as a colour scheme with lace and peals, i wanted to make an easel card as i think they are a little more special, I used a gorgeous image from Magnolia wedding collection, lightly coloured with distress inks. The love stamp is also Magnolia and cut with a nestie then inked around the edges with distress ink. The paper is from Magnolia the flowers pears beads and lace are from a selection of my stash.

I made a matching box from a template found Here from the amazing Maddie.


And a close up of the flowers...Thanks for looking...x
